I hope you're all taking prime advantage of Torquere's anniversary giveaways! (http://glbtromance.blogspot.com/2013/08/10-years-wow.html)
Why this is, I'm not sure. Possibly because doing the joint sale manages to hit both readers who like short stories and readers who like anthologies? No idea, but the numbers are pretty clear.
So the standalone short story is off the table, at least for now. For 2014, we're going to be offering only anthologies, one a month, and each release will offer the anthology as a whole, or the short stories individually.
And I am no longer the Sips (short story) Editor, but the anthology editor. Well, I'm still the Sips Editor now. The change won't happen until around mid-November, when I'm done editing the last of the December Sips. Which means that my "edited by..." credits are going to be getting quite a bit longer. (Because standalone stories of any length don't show an "edited by" credit, but anthologies do.) Or maybe I'll start calling myself the Editrix!
...Okay, probably not.
In case you're curious, the calls for the first eight anthologies (through August 2014) are up at Torquere's website, at http://www.torquerepress.com/specialcalls.html.
